In Alchemists, two to fourbudding alchemists compete to discover the secrets of their mystical art.Points can be earned in various ways, but most points are earned by publishingtheories – correct theories, that is — and therein lies the problem.


The game is played in sixrounds. At the beginning of the round, players choose their play order. Thosewho choose to play later get more rewards. Players declare all their actions byplacing cubes on the various action spaces, then each action space is evaluatedin order. Players gain knowledge by mixing ingredients and testing the resultsusing a smartphone app (iOS, Android, and also Windows) that randomizes therules of alchemy for each new game. And if the alchemists are longing forsomething even more special, they can always buy magical artifacts to get anextra push. There are 9 of them (different for each game) and they are not onlyvery powerful, but also very expensive. But money means nothing, when there'sacademic pride at stake! And the possession of these artifacts will definitelyearn you some reputation too. Players can also earn money by selling potions ofquestionable quality to adventurers, but money is just a means to an end. Thealchemists don't want riches, after all. They want respect, and respect usuallycomes from publishing theories.


During play, players'reputations will go up and down. After six rounds and a final exhibition, reputationwill be converted into points. Points will also be scored for artifacts andgrants. Then the secrets of alchemy are revealed and players score points orlose points based on whether their theories were correct. Whoever has the mostpoints at the end of the game wins.
